The stylised hiragana shimo しも form a broken circle with two horizontal lines on the left, similar to the Euro sign. The emblem symbolises the citizen's harmony and unity, and the steady (progress ?) of the town's strength.

The flag of the town of Shimogo is already reported,  but I found darker purple flags.
(Fuji-iro color )
